🔟Cosmopolitanism can be traced back to Diogenes of Sinope (c. 412 B.C.), the founding father of the Cynic movement in Ancient Greece.
Of Diogenes it is said: “Asked where he came from, he answered: ‘I am a citizen of the world (kosmopolitês)'”
1⃣1⃣ However those who invoke the cosmopolitan project rarely ask whose experience, understanding, or vision of cosmopolitanism is being described and for whose purposes?
The vital but often neglected question: whose cosmopolitanism?
1⃣2⃣John Leonard, “A Brief Critique of Cosmopolitanism”
“The cosmopolitan’s unshakable belief in his own openness forms a protective barrier against all really new or radically old ideas; he is surrounded infallibly by a kind of glowing haze which easily blinds him”
1⃣3⃣”Cosmopolitanism has a dangerous ability, which all other kinds of statefare have so far lacked, to shutter the minds of its citizens and simultaneously to convince them of their unique open-mindedness”
1⃣4⃣ Leonard is a right wing conservative philosopher, what is the defense of Cosmopolitanism?
“…patriotism. Cosmopolitan liberals are not frightened by the word.”
Dean of the School of Public Policy at the LSE
1⃣5⃣ “The Liberals That Never Was” like
not only are afraid of the word ‘Patriotism’,
THEY DESPISE IT.
1⃣6⃣ Let’s compare two expats.
The first is of greek origin the latter is of Turkish.
Can Okar is a Turkish Patriot.
A bright mind that if there were more like him in Turkey our neighborhood would be a playground.
And Turkey a Real super power.
1⃣7⃣ Although @DIAS is of greek origin, he is not Hellenas, and he is not a patriot.
He despises everything about the residents of Hellas and Hellenes because he is an Expat raised abroad, HE KNOWS BETTER…
1⃣8⃣ We had so many of them at the first years of the Hellenic economic crisis.
They attacked Hellas and Hellenes in every social media, they were the ones that made everything right, we were the ones that made everything wrong, AND we had to pay for it.
Βάστα Σόιμπλε !
1⃣9⃣ Now Turkey is on the verge of economic collapse, and patriots like @canokar that really worries about his co-patriots makes tweets with ARGUMENTS, never insulting, about what must change.
If only Turkey had more like him.
2⃣0⃣ Unlike Okar, @Dias will not stop attacking, defaming, insulting everyone and anything Hellenic that dares to have a different point of view.
He is not a Hellenas, and he will never be.
